Yeah :/ well, I mean I get quite a bit of it in terms of anons (a lot of anti T/Z ones or just really weird ones hating on Ziva) but I delete most of them because really, I ain’t got time for that.
But you know what? I’m following way more people than I was at the start of season 10 and I’m talking to way more people than I was back then and that really is because I’m discovering new blogs and new peeps all the time - I think there are a lot of great fans out there and I think that’s pretty cool :-)
I don’t blame you AT ALL for being distracted this week! I made a deal with myself that I would cut down on my tumblr/general internet procrastination time now that most of my shows are over, so that I can concentrate on important life goals/summer fitness plans and LOL - ncis and this goofball of a cast have not had me off to a good start.
I’m sorry to hear you’ve also been on the receiving end of that level of rudeness. I’ve been trying - very slowly because I am painfully bad - to talk to NCIS fandom peeps a little more and it was the first time I’d encountered non-anon hostility from another viewer and it does affect you. However, there are some truly, lovely people on here, who also take the time to send lovely, sweet messages like this one, so thank you.
Also your icon is ridiculous and should be banned.
You are simultaneously delightful and my favourite thing. I absolutely love it when fans of the same shows that I like come and scream in my askbox because they literally can’t contain their excitement anymore. IT’S THE BEST. Both NCIS and NCIS: LA had me yelling at my laptop. I love penguins and I have a lot of them on my bed and a fair few of them got punched I’m sorry I did that but tv made me I’m sure you understand.
Hi anon :-)
Sorry this is so late but I had to go out earlier. Bless you that you think I’ve got cheer potential. I don’t always think I’m so ‘one with the words’ lol but I’ll give it a go.
Firstly, if you’re following anyone who claims Tony just got ‘friendzoned’, unfollow them now. No, seriously, just do it. The friendzone is a made-up concept embedded deep in the walls of misogyny to frame guys in a good light when a woman says no to his advances or refuses to sleep with him. So yeah, anyone using this term to define what is happening between Tony and Ziva a) has no actual concept of the root of the word and b) has no actual concept of Tony and Ziva.
Anon, the only thing I want you to focus on right now is the fact that Ziva made an effort to define their relationship. Not in a “this is ALL we are” kind of way but in a way that gave Tony insight into what she was feeling, what she needed right now and that she wanted it to be him she could lean on. Ziva apologising is a huge thing - a HUGE thing. It was almost awkward. Because it’s so alien for her to take that step, especially after months of careful barrier-errecting. So to say “I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to hurt you, you are important to me,” is actually a pretty incredible character moment for her. Look at the way she stammers over the word “friendship”. It takes her ages to get the word out because she has been so very afraid of defining Tony as anything more than her partner and she’s not even sure if she’s found the right word. She sort of stumbles over it and she looks up at him, her eyes almost asking him if she used the correct word or if it’s okay she used just that word? Does he need her to say more words? And Tony just looks at her and gets it. She’s saying - she wants to let him in more. And he’s saying - he’ll let her.
Aw, I agree, this show is my favourite thing on tv right now.
Let’s just say that someone was not very kind to me yesterday evening and that, coupled with a string of not-very-nice anons lately that I haven’t even bothered to publish yet because I don’t have the energy for them. idk it’s kind of like being at that party you speak of and there’s that person who ruins the entire experience for you. Everybody gets to carry on dancing but you just want to exit.

Thank you so much!!
Y’know, every time I think about changing my icon I can’t bring myself to do it because a) it’s Donna. And b) it’s Donna judging every single post I make in a condescending manner.
Aw, bless you anon ♥
It gets really tricky when I tag now because they both come up automatically when I start typing out “Tony” and I keep mixing them up. But I love them both so very much!
Thank you for stopping by to leave a message and have a wonderful rest of the day :-)
